    How much would you pay? Now this one looks good and no pilots license to run it. www.trademe.co.nz

    There is a lot of wing-in groung effect craft but but most are very expensive not many that are practical for an everyday boatie to build or run.

    You dont need a pilots licence to fly that wig. The one your looking at is very good and safe. Theres a bigger following starting with Hovercraft these days. Its still not catching on for some reason even though there are some nice ones to choose from compared to 10 years ago. Ive always been a big fan since my dad and I made one back in the late 60,s from an inertube,plywood and a lawnmore engine.:D

    These Hovercraft are WIG too.

    We had a long and deep discussion about them a year ago.

    Our member "kroberts" is the one with some first hand experience on hovercraft.
